The Siemens Gigaset C470IP VoIP phone comes with dual mode functionality that allows you to switch between internet VoIP and fixed-line calls at the touch of a button. You can make internet calls without a PC and access up to 6 SIP accounts from different VoIP providers directly through the handset. It allows you the freedom to make 3 parallel calls by using additional Gigaset handsets that wirelessly connect to the same base. Two of these calls can be VoIP calls and one a fixed line call. Finally, its simple and modern design matches any interior or sophisticated décor.
The Gigaset C470IP boasts a handy e-mail notification feature, bringing you alerts of new messages on the set. The details will include the date, time and subject line of the mails. If you happen to be away from home, you can program the Gigaset C470 IP to alert you of any missed calls by sending you an SMS to your cell phone or another external number.
The VoIP phone also provides information services like weather forecasts as screensaver. For multi-taskers with busy lifestyles this phone is a great convenience as its hands free feature allows you to carry on with whatever you happen to be occupied with or just lie back on the couch with your hands behind your head while you enjoy a relaxing chat in brilliant sound quality.
The Gigaset VoIP phone also incorporates the new energy saving ECO DECT technology, which consumes up to 60% less energy than our conventional cordless phones. Like all Gigaset cordless phones, it also variably reduces transmitting power from the handset to base station according to the distance; it also goes further in a number of other ways. Choosing ECO Mode on this model reduces the base station’s transmission power by 80%. It is an energy-efficient way of staying connected with your world.
The Gigaset C470IP phones can be combined with an Asterisk PBX to shape an unbeatable wireless VoIP telephony solution for small or very small business or even for hosted PBX and distributed PBX environments. More robust and reliable than a Wifi phone, the Gigaset C470 IP DECT VoIP phones are perfect when wireless freedom is required in business environments.
The Gigaset IP phone can take great advantage of the features that the Asterisk PBX has to offer, especially for setups requiring more than 6 extensions. Finally the phones can be incorporated with more advanced messaging platforms and services that can be integrated with the Asterisk PBX. These subscription services such as RSS feeds and weather information can then be accessible directly via your Gigaset handset.
The Asterisk PBX brings small to medium enterprises a feature-rich, cost-effective, reliable telephony solution. The implementation of the Asterisk allows one connect and make calls between a wide range of different SIP-enabled VoIP phones and soft phones. Asterisk implementation is fairly simple when using available GUIs like Asterisk NOW, but its deployments can get more complex. Combining the Siemens Gigaset C470IP with the Asterisk PBX can create a powerful, robust and flexible solution.
